Ev-1 not seeing drive

Ev-1 not seeing drive
My autopilot stopped working. The error was no drive detected.

I checked the autopilot connections and voltage and could find no problem.

I then refreshed the software for my entire Raymarine suite, successfully.

Now I can't get through the wizard.

Specifically,

- I'm running ev-1, acu 100, p70, i50 depth, i50 speed and i60 wind, with e7 MFD
- the software update was successful for all of these components
- all components are working fine, other than the autopilot
- I did a pilot factory reset
- I set the "vessel hull" type, but in the vessel settings menu there is no option to select "drive type" per the manual section 3.1; it just isn't there; see attached photo; the menu doesn't scroll down below what is in the photo

As a result (i think) the wizard prompts me to turn the wheel port, starboard etc., but then throws up the error message of inconsistent values and I can't proceed through the wizard steps.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers...Ralph

RE: Ev-1 not seeing drive
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Ralph,

What model of autopilot drive unit has been installed onboard the boat and has been interfaced to the ACU? Did this autopilot have a history of having previously functioned properly? Also, no photos were attached to your thread ... please include them with your posted response.

RE: Ev-1 not seeing drive
Thanks, Chuck.

The wheel drive is the EV-100, and has worked well for the one year or so since it was installed.

I'll try again to attach the photo. If it doesn't appear, it's a photo of the Vessel Settings menu showing only Vessel Hull Type, Compass Offset and Calibration Lock. The menu does not scroll beyond these three items.

No reference to drive type. I can find no page in which to select the drive type.

Cheers...Ralph

Ps...I see why the photo doesn't appear...The image file is too large

RE: Ev-1 not seeing drive
Ralph,

It is recommended that you examine the ACU100 to verify that its Status LED is illuminated and colored green, indicating that the ACU100 is being powered and is operating normally. If not, then please respond accordingly. If so, then it is recommended that the autopilot control head be commanded to the list of devices which it senses within the SeaTalkng backbone (MENU->SET-UP->DIAGNOSTICS->ABOUT SYSTEM->CONFIRM). Please list all devices listed and then additionally select each device and specify the version of software listed for each device.

Regarding photos, they need to be resized to be no larger than 500kB.

Thank you.

I'll report back when I return to the boat in a couple of weeks.
